A Global Companionship Initiative of the Jesuit Schools Network
Dear Global Companions:  

We will soon take up the plow of Year Two of Hemispheres, but here are some important initiatives already afoot with our partners...
DACA Sign-On Letter Request
“THE DIGNITY OF EVERY HUMAN BEING, PARTICULARLY THAT OF OUR CHILDREN AND YOUTH, MUST BE PROTECTED.”

Bishop Joe S. Vásquez, Chair of the Migration Committee and Bishop of Austin, Texas
The Ignatian Solidarity Network invites Jesuit and Ignatian educators across the U.S. to lift up Bishop Joe S. Vásquez's recent statement in support of young immigrants who are part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The sign-on letter is addressed to John F. Kelly, former DHS Secretary and current White House chief of staff, and calls upon the Administration to "maintain DACA as an essential program for the well-being of young people and our communities."
